Common Causes of Truck Accidents
A nearly infinite number of factors can come together to cause a truck accident. However, a majority of truck accidents occur as a result of truck driver negligence. In many cases, these negligent actions directly violate guidelines established by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This exposes truck drivers and trucking companies to liability for any damages that should occur in the event of an accident.
Truck accidents are frequently caused by the following:
- Distracted driving
- Driving for too long without rest
- Skipping vehicle inspections
- Improper vehicle maintenance
- Failing to check blind spots
- Driving at unsafe speeds
- Improperly loading cargo
If you were injured in a collision with an 18-wheeler caused by some form of truck driver negligence, you may be entitled to recover compensation for losses stemming from:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Damaged property
Furthermore, if a loved one should unfortunately have lost their life in a truck accident, a wrongful death claim can be filed in pursuit of additional damages related to:
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of companionship
- Emotional distress
Our truck accident lawyer can examine the circumstances surrounding your crash and help you determine if you have a valid claim.
Virginia is one of the few states with a contributory fault or contributory negligent rule. Therefore, under this law, persons injured in vehicle accidents may not recover compensation from another at-fault party if it is deemed that they share even the tiniest bit of fault for the collision. In order to recover compensation, injured parties must be able to prove that their injuries were 100 percent the fault of the other involved drivers.
